Özet

Objective: The aim of the the study was to compare CT-obtained measures related to the cross-sectional area of the airway at various points (nasal valve, mid-nasal cavity, choanal, retro-lingual and retro-uvulal) in cases of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) with their values in normal controls. Such abnormal values may act as markers of risk for OSA.
